You’ve decided that the time has come, you or you and your partner are ready to start trying for a baby.  But now what?

1 in 8 couples will have trouble getting or staying pregnant and infertility affects 7.4 million women in their lifetime. The emotional toll of trying to get pregnant can be high, and the pressure immense. 1 in 4 recognized pregnancies ends in miscarriage, leaving many women feeling isolated and not knowing where to turn for support. Participating in therapy while trying to conceive can aid in building your support system, allowing you to have someone outside of your immediate circle to share with and building skills for processing through grief, loss and self-esteem.
